Young Jean Lee’s Theater Company (NY)
UNTITLED FEMINIST SHOW (NY Premiere)

A “brief, joyous, mute extravaganza of dance, mime, and movement”
– New York Magazine

“Does [she] hold nothing sacred? Rather little, save a devotion to the theatrical medium and a desire to challenge complacency, encouraging audiences to think – and feel – for themselves.”
- The Village Voice

“She offers the pleasure of brazen theatrical inventiveness” -
The New Yorker

“Lee confirms herself as one of the best experimental playwrights in America.”
– Time Out New York

“Her work constantly turns itself inside out. It’s also constantly fascinating.”
- The Wall Street Journal

“The clearest indication that the avant-garde isn’t dead, and has never been funnier.”
- New York Magazine
